Hehehe! :D

Yeah, I know. I toned it down now. They are free to meditate whenever they want though. It's better not to force.

I chose 'deeply religious' because somewhat religious doesn't quite fit. I don't have strict rules, I just love Jesus and that's it.

I usually say I'm as close to an atheist one can be without actually being an atheist, and that's only because I don't think there is a way to disprove the existance of a god. I usually label myself as an agnostic :)

It's not our job as a scientific community to disprove anything. Otherwise any Joe would be demanding disproof of tooth fairies, unicorns and any magical/supernatural concept they can come up with.

I am an atheist because to me belief in a God is like believing in magic. To say that a creator made the universe is no explanation in cosmology because then you have to ask: who made the creator? It is not logical to say he's always been.

Today physists have shown us how the universe can and did come from nothingness (see Lawrence Krauss' seminars on how it happened).

I never said it was our job to disprove anything, I just personally feel that since we can't I don't wanna call myself an atheist, because there's no way to know. :)

Hmm... I'm Christian, so I do not really have a religion. NOW BEFORE ANYONE ARGUES WITH ME, just to clarify, a religion is a set of rules, a code, a list of things to do and not do. Christianity is not a bunch of rules, it is simply a relationship with God.

And if anyone is thinking, "If there is a God, why does bad stuff happen?", it is because we chose that path. Or at least Adam and Eve chose it. But because of what Jesus did, because of what GOD did, we don't have to be trapped by that anymore.

I love Him, and he loves me, as well as all of you. And that's all that matters. :)

Really? Let me ask you this...

Have you read the Bible, and if so, accepting that the Bible is the word of God (as a Christian), are you familiar with what the lord has to say about people who don't follow him and worship other gods? More importantly, are you familiar with what your God wants you to do when you come across such heretics?

As for choosing the bumpy and dangerous path we currently tread...

I certainly didn't choose it. I didn't choose to be a man, I didn't choose to be born in Portugal, I didn't pick my parents, my genome, the events I'd encounter that would shape me and my life, and I certainly didn't choose to be born. Not much of the free will that He is purported to have bestowed upon mankind, is there?

Thirdly, if His son died to save us, why do we even bother? Finally, where have you been? Adam and Eve were not the first human beings and it has already been proven that the earth is older than what the Bible claims it is. So many loopholes I could go on for eternity...
